For those of you who struggle during Christmas, try to turn this annual event on its head, try to see Christmas as a time to celebrate all of your hard work, determination and effort that you’ve put in throughout 2020.

Tomorrow we will be submitting our official request to The London Eye to ask them to illuminate The London Eye purple in honour of International Overdose Awareness Day on the 31st August 2020.
